Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2014 -- Thailand will maintain its status as a key Asian agricultural provider in the coming years, as the sector benefits from strong export opportunities and government support as well as an efficient food-producing industry. The sugar and livestock sectors are especially promising; h owever, the government's interference in the market, especially in the rice sector, will hind er the competitiveness of Thailand's production relative to its Asian rivals. Thailand will remain a key rice exporter but may lose out to secondary exporters owing to growing instability in its trade policy.

Key Forecasts:

- Poultry production growth to 2017/18: 30.6% to 1.97mn tonnes. This growth will largely be due to increased private investment in the sector. The lift of an eight-year EU ban on uncooked imports in April 2012 will allow imports of Thai-produced poultry and other food products and give the industry more impetus to expand production.

- Sugar consumption growth to 2018: 26.5% to 3.3mn tonnes. Thailand's sugar consumption is growing fast, boosted by caching consumption patterns and the rising demand for carbonated soft drinks and confectionery sales.

- Rice production growth to 2017/18: 8.5% to 21.9mn tonnes. This in line with the government's forecast for rice production to reach 21mn tonnes by 2014/15. Expansion will come almost entirely from improved yields, as the area of land under rice cultivation will remain stable.

- BMI universe agribusiness market value: 22.1mn in 2014 (growth to average 4.1% annually between 2014 and 2018).

- Real GDP growth in 2014: 2.0% chg y-o-y (down from 2.9% in 2013, forecast to average 3.6% between 2014 and 2018).

- Consumer price index in 2014: 2.6% average (up from 2.2% in 2013; forecast to average 2.5% between 2014 and 2018).

- Real lending rate in 2014: 6.3% ave (down from 7.4% in 2013; forecast to average 6.5% between 2014 and 2018).
